These are the latest shots of the work in progress study on the VTOL
Commuter personal vehicle. It is really looking alot better with the awesome
tools that Gmax has. Hopefully it will be released soon. The problem so far
is a good airfile that will allow it to fly at 312 knots and then to land vertically.
Pretty agressive looking, eh? With that
much propellor area aimed in one
direction, she should fly pretty fast.
Shown here, the ducted thrusters are
aimed upward for vertical
ascent/descent. The tail should be
doning it soon as well.
My little nephew Austyn has inspired me
into the art of 'landing atop skyscrapers',
which as you can see here, I made it. Note
the opened canopy.
This is a wild view, doing some
manuvres after departing the airport.
Prepairing to land on another building
Climbing out in the rain over Seatle.
Max climb out after departing a roof
top, thrusters still in VTOL position.
